The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) a servant when he prays -- (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
